Steel Beam Calculator is run by Kevin Taylor and John Croasdale. Kevin is a practising structural engineer with over 20 years’ experience in the industry. John is a software developer with more than 15 years’ experience.

Kevin and John set up this website in 2011 to enable building industry professionals to design safe and effective steel beams more quickly and affordably.

What you get – the report

After entering the details and measurements for your required steel beam into the calculator, you immediately get a PDF beam calculation report, which tells you if your beam will be adequate and includes detailed specifications.

Try a demo version of the calculator for free first and see some example reports for common building jobs.

You can also sign up for 12 months ($60) or for 24 months ($90), which again gives you unlimited access during that period.
